something in place to stop that? and my comment is everybody is keep talking about president obama, they're blaming president obama for this and that, but the one thing that they have to remember, everybody has to remember that he can't do it alone. he can't do anything by himself. thank you, and i'll hear your comment. >> guest: well, certainly on your last point, that's right. i think that there has to be a bipartisan solution to our budget problems. one of the things that -- a positive aspect about the budget deal that seems to be developing, small though it is, is that it would be an instance in which the democrats and the republicans have agreed on on something and that the white house presumably is okay with. so it may be a short deal, but at least it would be something that had bipartisan support. on the food stamp question, you know, i think that food stamp costs, you know, went up with the economy. when the economy went down, you know, that raises food stamp expenditures because more people need the assistance. some of that is coming down, but there's really still certainly a ne
technologies to keep israelis safe from rockets and missiles. those systems and newer technologies continue to protect israelis from the range of threats that they still face today. president obama and i -- and i think you heard this from the president in his q&a earlier today -- remain deeply committed. indeed determined to ensuring israel has the ability to defend itself by itself. that is why in fact, by any measurement, president obama's administration has done more than any before to make israel more secure, including funding iron dome, which i saved untold -- which has saved untold lives by intercepting hundreds of rockets that might otherwise have struck schools, hospitals, or homes. deepening our day-to-day security on an ongoing basis. negotiating a new, long-term memorandum of understanding to lock in long-term military assistance for the future. providing access to the most sophisticated u.s. military technology, such as precision munitions, the f-35 joint strike fighter, the v-22 osprey. israel is the only country in the world to receive it from the united states. and engaging i
. >> caller: hi. my thought last week and two weeks ago president obama kept repeating things like you can keep your doctor and the whole scenario of all that. he kept repeating over and over and over. and i had thought had i always thought of him as the president of the united states. but it occurred to me when he kept saying that. it was almost like someone hiptized it occurred it came to me thought. the whole group that got in to the white house may be using him as the mouthpiece for the whole group. anever would have got ton the white house as someone articulate as president obama. and he is. >> host: who is the whole group? >> caller: i'm talking about a group of progressives that wanted in to the white house and they wanted to be in it regardless of whether they can get elected or not. but president obama seemed like a good candidate to be their mouthpiece. it's kind of what he's acting like. because nobody ask get fired because they are in charge. and he isn't. >> host: okay. >> caller: it occurred to me
, their education, their experience said, "no." why? because they don't want president obama to have these people on this important court. they want to keep the court with a majority of republicans. that is wrong. it's wrong. and there were many reasons that we did what we did but it was the right thing for the country. it's the right thing for democracy. i ask unanimous consent that the senate proceed to executive session to consider nominations calendar number 30, 347, 348, 349, 450, 383, 382 accident 384, 386, 434, 435, 436, and 437, that the nominations be confirmed, the motion to reconsider be considered made and laid on the table, no further action, any statements related to the nominations be printed in the record, that president obama be immediately notified of the senate's action and the senate then resume legislative session. the presiding officer: is there objection? mr. alexander: madam president, reserving the right to object. the presiding officer: the senator from tennessee. mr. alexander: thank you, madam president. reserving the right to object. and again, i'll make my comments a
of this country and the values of this country. problem with messages came to a head with do you want to keep your plan. you recall, he began that formulation by saying if you like your doctor, you'll be able your doctor. that quickly turned out not to obama dropped it pretty quickly and went to plan. are confusing -- it's a confusing law. and messaging is mixed cloudy and -- and not entirely undermine's really the president's ability to say trust us on this. subject.all on this dennis is waiting from hobbs, our line for independents. you're on with scott wilson of "the washington post." >> good morning. how are you? >> good. >> mr. wilson, are you surviving attack? >> what attack is that? >> by the callers? >> oh. up him more ating than they beat up the president or the senate or congress. answer trying to do is some questions. you brought up a point earlier get on obama's bad side, don't let him know things. him sound like people inside the white house left hand is not telling the right hand on.t's going is this your perception or is this what is actually going on? >> i -- it is actually what's
't taken regards the entrance of saudi arabia and israel, and you said in another article that obama backed down from netanyahu considering the settlements before. and also if you could discuss -- >> can we keep it to one question? if that is alright, just because we of other people with their hands up. >> exceeds the, sir, so what is the question? >> what is the endgame in iran? >> it will be either the treaty being designed and approved through the same process that created the current six-month or a breakdown in which case it will be in some phase of acute instability in the context of which i hope we do not lose our sense of rationality regarding our actions and therefore do not get sucked into war because they were in the middle east with an 80 million nation is going to make the expeditions to afghanistan and to iraq look like short-term. only lasting a dozen years or so. it is a very painful choice, but an important choice. what i do regret in the context of the growing public discussion of what might happen, the total absence of recognition of the fact that the u.s. for 30 years man
of obama care. hishe gentle man knows, constituents as well as mine are faced with higher premiums. he has said to the american people they can keep their health care laws if they would like -- health care plans if they would like to. they have to figure out what kinds of plants are actually there for them. the administration claims the website is working just fine. we know the backend of that website is not working just fine. i am glad people are able to get on and see what is there. we don't really know how successful the sign-ups and enrollments are being. areo know most individuals facing higher premiums. those that have had to give up the plan are facing higher premiums and plants they don't necessarily choose, that they are forced to have because of the operation of this law. we need to focus on this issue. we voted on the alternative back in 2009. there was a planned the congressional budget office said ford reduce premium patients out there. we have not resolved this issue of health care. there is a better way. we ought to spend time focusing on how we are going to resolve that for
as well as many analysts misjudged assad's staying power with? my in august 2011, president obama said he must step aside. why do you think that happened, because that may have attempted to some of the problems we have policy?yria >> they completely misread iran to russia's commitment keeping us in power. when you have intelligence providers to assad, the leverage that gave him and staying power was limited. i think both of those were not factored in. if you look at it from recent history lesson here, when you look at what happened in libya, you can see all the formulations of why he was going to go quickly. they took that, plopped it over in serious and said it was going to be syria. you have the same elements happening in serious that you had in libya with that huge exception of this commitment of iran not to let it go, and the russians cannot let it go. they needed a warm water port and it was their last toehold in the middle east. they ramped up their ability to protect assad and to try to at least increase the ability of ,he syrian regular army forces the military forces in a way tha
and how bad the fact did and say, are they going to change just like that? are they going to keep doing what they've been doing? once again, if they get a nuclear weapon, every country in the area will have a nuclear weapon. the question also comes, president obama spleen, the steel allows them to enrich uranium to a certain point. it only takes a few minutes to go from that point to nuclearization. if that's where you want to have them wear brand two months away from having a nuclear weapon at all times, if that makes everybody happy, that's pretty scary. >> host: back to the "washington post." they also write this. sunni arab states don't object to deal that could curb iran's nuclear objections, but they worry about the ramifications of ties between tehran and washington said one security expert, the big worry he said at a long-term deal normalizing ties between iran and the united states took him at the expense of sunni influence. what do you think about this? expanded a little bit. they like to make friends with our past foes and kind of ignore our allies. this kind of plays into it
